A History of Classical Sociology. / Edited by Prof I.S. Kon. Translated by H. Campbell Creighton, M.A. (Oxon). Moscow: Progress Publishers, 1989. ― 376 p. ― (Student's Library). ISBN 5-01-001102-6
This is a study of the shaping and development of sociology in Western Europe, the United States, and Russia at the turn of the century, a period particularly important for the establishing of sociology as an independent discipline. The authors examine its development from social philosophy to sociology proper, and discuss how it grew from the rather vague programme it was, for example, in the conceptions of Auguste Comte, into a leading social science at the beginning of the twentieth century. They trace how it developed its conceptual apparatus, and how it began a systematic treatment of problems of the methodo­logy and techniques of research.
The contribution to sociology of the great spokesmen of its classical period, like Tönnies, Simmel, Durkheim, Max Weber, and Pareto, are examined in detail.
